Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comHere’s a quick look at all the happenings from the Jets of the last year, month by month. Next up, May 2013 …
Things started quieting down some in May, but with the drafting of Sheldon Richardson, the Jets had plans to “move” Quinton Coples. Coples knew he had to help out the line more. Willie Colon was ready to make the jump to guard.
Deadspin lent some detail to Geno Smith’s firing of his agents. Football Outsiders said Geno was the best QB prospect of the class based on the Lewin Career Forecast model, Jaws came to Geno’s defense. Geno knew he had to brush off criticism, unless I guess it was from himself. Geno settled of the Jay-Z’s agency to rep him.
Geno wasn’t the only one to fire his agency. Dee Milliner moved quick by firing his agency and finding a new one not long after. Joe Willie wanted Sanchez to win the QB job. Then Sanchez went out and threw three picks in practice. Word was some teammate(s) wanted Sanchez gone.
Joe McKnight made it known he wanted to be a big part of the team in 2013. The team started signing their draftees at the eve of rookie camp. Geno pulled a page from the Sanchez playbook and held a players meeting before the start of camp.
Random stuff? We learned Tommy Bohanon had some family ties to Idzik. Were the Jets looking to push Sanchez out? Antonio Allen wanted to become the starter at safety and Dawan Landry was ready to step in. Did Matt Simms already have the inside track in May?
